Pros: These drives appear to be outstanding when they don't arrive DOA or fail before burn-in.
Cons: My first drive arrived with the "Click of death" issue, and I'm currently in the RMA process. Based on outstanding reports from others, I've requested a replacement -- I'll give this model another chance before requesting a refund.
Other Thoughts: The shipping box was partially crushed, although the drive itself appeared undamaged. Aside from packing it well, which I have no complaints about (other than to note that styrofoam peanuts make quite a mess if you aren't carefu)l, I might recommend also marking the boxes as Fragile.
Arriving DOA is a surprisingly common problem with many 1TB+ capacity hard drives. This issue seems to apply across multiple manufacturers and vendors. I'm not sure if it's a general QA problem, or that such high-capacity drives are simply not robust enough to handle normal shipping. I'd like to be able to revise my review based on my experience with the replacement drive.
This review is from: TERK AM/FM+ Stereo Antenna with Gamma Loop Technology
Pros: The FM antenna improved reception significantly over the monopole antenna that came with my radio.
Cons: The AM antenna doesn't receive nearly as well as several loops of wire wrapped around a plastic frame that the manufacturer provided with my radio.
Other Thoughts: I wanted an antenna that didn't require power for my office. This product succeeds as a low-price FM antenna, but the AM reception is only slightly better than no antenna at all. I'll continue to use a separate antenna for AM.READ FULL REVIEW
